Show 172 – The Beer Bubble

The Former Business 40

The closure of Business 40 in Winston-Salem has had a direct effect on businesses in the downtown area. What other towns could have a major road, that basically bifurcates the entire town, shut down and that town act like nothing happened? None that we know of. The closure is of a scope the state of North Carolina has never seen. But, we have to start blaming something else for the struggle it creates for the businesses within our fair city. Could it be an oversaturation of the same kinds of places? A workforce that is underqualified to handle the demand? There could be a hundred reasons but the bottom line is our businesses, and to an extent, our whole city, is struggling and suffering. The Dads talk about what’s going on and possible reasons why.

The Beer of the week is Been There Done That Double IPA by Casita Cerveceria.

The show was recorded at The Lab at Industry Hill. Industry Hill is a business-minded neighborhood in the former Warehouse District. In the district are restaurants, a chocolatier, a distillery, two breweries, a beverage company, an entertainment complex, textiles, packaging and much more to come. To find out more follow them on social media or visit the area’s website. Thanks so much to Industry Hill for having a place for us to bring you our podcasts.
